Legal Education and Uniform Laws Group

Who We Are

This group differs from other RPTE groups in that it surveys activities and information across the entire spectrum of property topics, rather than focusing on specific substantive areas. The group consists of the Legal Education and Uniform Laws committees. One of the group’s primary activities is Professors’ Corner, a free monthly webinar (on the second Wednesday of every month) which features a panel of law professors discussing recent cases or issues of interest to real estate or trust and estate practitioners and scholars.

Title Insurance Developments

April 8, 2015

Join us on April 8 for a discussion of recent developments in title insurance, featuring the country's two leading academic voices on the law of title insurance.

Prof. Joyce Palomar, the author of Title Insurance Law (Thomson Reuters) will discuss the effect of a full credit bid or failure to pursue a deficiency judgment on a mortgage lender's title insurance coverage. Her remarks will discuss the full credit bid rule, whether the rule should apply to title insurance policies, and whether a full credit bid prevents the lender from recovering on a Closing Protection Letter.

Prof. Barlow Burke, the author of The Law of Title Insurance (Aspen Law & Business), will discuss the “in for one, in for all” rule (the rule that commercial liability insurers assume a broad duty to defend their policyholders and, if an insurer has a duty to defend one of the underlying counts in a complaint, the insurer must also defend the remaining counts), and recent judicial inroads on the rule in the context of title insurance coverage.
